Series: The Forms of the Old Testament Literature (FOTL)

Long views 1-2 Kings as a substantially unified written work of historiography, produced during the Babylonian exile. Hence he begins his detailed form-critical commentary on 2 Kings where he left off in his volume on 1 Kings. Following the series format, Long discusses the text of 2 Kings unit by unit and integrates his form-critical work with a discussion of the book's literary art (e.g., style, metaphor, imagery) to expose "the narrative genius which awakens imaginative response in the reader."
Walter Brueggemann
"Burke Long has written a shrewd, discerning, and comprehensive study that will become an enduring point of reference for future study. It is evident that Long knows all the literature in a thorough and masterful way. He is, moreover, intentional about method, and works his method with power and insight. . . His book is a model for mobilizing detail into a sensible and illuminating whole."
Simon J. De Vries
"Burke O. Long completes his insightful exposition of ancient Israel's great history document in adding this volume on 2 Kings to his earlier volume on 1 Kings. As a masterful interpreter of the shape and intent of Scripture, he has few equals. More than anything else, his two volumes demonstrate the central importance of the innovative type of analysis promoted by the FOTL series within the expanding discipline of biblical exegesis."
